“It plays out like a vibrant, explosive slice of life.”~Urban Cinefile

Aroview: A tough, unglamorous insight into the police work of a Parisian Juvenile Protection Unit, whose officers grapple with the moral and personal dilemmas of law enforcement on a day-to-day basis.

Charged with spontaneity and cluttered with messy incident in the style of THE CLASS, there is sustained tension in the performances of the ensemble cast, though director Maïwenn arguably dilutes the potency of the dramas by casting herself as an oddly aloof photographer. The abrupt ending will polarize viewers, though it is in typical French tradition.
